In defiance to the order by the Federal Capital Territory’s Commissioner of Police, Joseph Mbu, not to stage protest in Abuja, Senator Babafemi Ojudu on Tuesday, 3rd June, 2014, dared the CP as he staged a peaceful protest on #bringback our girls, at Unity Fountain in Abuja with his aides.
It could be recalled that Mbu on Monday, 2nd June, 2014, chased away some protesters calling for the release of over 200 girls abducted from the Government Secondary School, Chibok in Borno state by the Boko Haram sect.
However, Senator Ojudu in company of his aides stormed Unity Fountain saying the order by CP Mbu is illegal that banning of protest is an infringement on people’s right.
Ojudu who warned Mbu not to repeat what he did in Rivers state in FCT said that the protest will continue until government takes necessary steps to bring back the abducted girls.
He added that if not for the protests by various groups especially, women groups, the whole world would not have been aware of the issue saying that the protest has attracted attention of countries like China, United Kingdom, United States of America (USA) and France among others.
